Road Trip Wednesday: September Fave
This week's topic:
What was the best book you read in September?
I haven't gotten as much reading done this month as I would have liked, unless you count blog-lurking, which I'm pretty sure doesn't count. I have managed to finish a few books, and so my 'best book' is actually a tossup between two. I'm not going to choose between them because I like them both for the same reason. I've mentioned before that I love dystopian/post-apocalyptic stuff, and neither of these fits into that category. I think that's why I liked them so much. They were a bit of a breath of fresh air and a lot more fun than the stuff I've been drawn to lately.
Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Both of these books have eased me back into reading a wider variety of books, rather than instantly migrating toward dystopian and post-apocalyptic stories (though I do have quite a few on my current TBR list). I needed a good laugh, and both of these in their own entirely different ways provided that for me.
